Certified Naturally Grown gains hundreds of new members every year, thanks mainly to farmers and supporters who enthusiastically recommend CNG to people they know. In 2016, we want to reach an even greater number of farmers and food eaters through our new Ambassador program.
If you would like to play an official role in helping Certified Naturally Grown reach more people and have more impact, please participate!
With the Ambassador program, there is an application and a bit of training involved. We just want to be sure that the people we promote to be our Ambassadors are well-informed and can accurately and effectively represent Certified Naturally Grown. (As always, we still encourage everyone to share with their networks about CNG, whether or not they're an Ambassador.)
What's involved? Committing to at least three of the following activities:
- Reaching out to new audiences who should know about Certified Naturally Grown
- Participating in conference calls to get updates about the latest CNG happenings (required)
- Receive training on how to communicate accurately and effectively about CNG (required)
- Representing CNG at local events related to food and farming
- Contacting your local newspaper, tv and/or radio stations with recommendations for stories
- Reaching out to prospective CNG farmers and beekeepers by phone
Why be an Ambassador? It provides these opportunities:
- To contribute to our movement in a more significant way
- To have inner-circle updates via conference calls with CNG’s leadership
- To attend interesting events, have great conversations, and possibly have your registration covered
- To get free merchandise that helps you show your CNG pride
Ambassadors are the first people we will call to represent us at conferences and events when staff need assistance or can not attend. Event registration may be covered by CNG to ensure we have a well-informed and qualified individual to represent us at important events. Do you think you'd enjoy this role? Please tell us more about yourself by completing an Ambassador Application. The first orientation will be held in October. This is a volunteer position for which we're seeking applicants.
